"The Healing Muse is a collection of beautiful compositions from the expansive works of cellist and composer Ron Clearfield. Perfect for relaxation, the music is soft and filled with emotion. This is largely due to Clearfield’s very expressive cello, which lends the pieces a pensive sound with light classical undertones.
